Two employees were infected with the corona virus on the newly built Meyer cruise ship “Odyssey of the Seas”. The luxury liner is therefore initially stuck in Bremerhaven, said a shipyard spokesman on Saturday. According to the order of the port medical service, several hundred workers who are still on board for the final equipment are not allowed to leave the ship for the time being. Initially, several media reported.
According to Meyer-Werft, the cases were known on Wednesday and confirmed with PCR tests on Thursday. The infected have been separated. According to the spokesman, it was not known whether they had been brought off board in the meantime. There are no other cases so far. The team will be tested daily and the next steps will be discussed with the authorities, it said. The press office of the Senator for Health was initially not available for a statement on Saturday.
The “Odyssey of the Seas” was transferred over the Ems towards the North Sea last weekend. The final equipment of the “Odyssey of the Seas” is now to take place in Bremerhaven.
